Broadway West Theatre Company presents the hilarious sequel to "Greater Tuna," "A Tuna Christmas" by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, directed by Jim Woodbury, November 9 through December 15 (no shows Thanksgiving weekend).
It's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities, Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, report on various Yuletide activities including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest and how the production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens join in the holiday fun. A delightful holiday show - with all characters portrayed by just two actors!
Performance times are 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. There are three Sunday matinees: November 18 and December 2 matinee performances begin with a continental brunch (included in price of ticket) at 12:15 p.m., and the show begins at 1 p.m. The December 9 performance starts at 1 p.m. with refreshments during intermission (included in price of ticket).
Regular ticket prices are $23 general and $18 for students, seniors, and TBA members. Thursday, November 15, December 6 and 13 performances are $15 for everyone, with a bargain Thursday (no reservations - first come, first seat!) held on November 29 - all tickets $10. Brunch Sunday performances and Opening night are $23 for everyone. All ticket prices include refreshments.
